Capacity development

FAO is actively supporting regional and country capacities to shape food systems that enable healthy diets. Developing appropriate food systems policies and actions entails improving governments' and non-State actors' capacities for carrying out the necessary actions. To achieve this goal, FAO has developed a Capacity Development Roadmap in support of the revised Vision and Strategy for FAO's Work in Nutrition (FAO's Nutrition Strategy). The Roadmap will steer the capacity development activities by addressing current gaps and leveraging opportunities.

Main resources by thematic area

FAO has developed a series of technical papers, policy briefs, manuals, e-learning courses, webinars and videos to assist partners in the design and implementation of appropriate, informed and coherent food systems policies and actions.
